Thanks for that Julian. Just had a quick look-over and it will definitely be useful for me. About time I started practicing business properly (and safely!).

Thanks again, and I'll get a lawyer to check it for me ASAP.

Just a note to anyone potentially wanting to use Julian's example contract. Please proof-read everything in there! The supplied download has a few glaring errors throughout the document and should certainly not be used 'as-is'.

Julian, if you want me to let you know of the problems I've spotted then just let me know. If you're wanting to provide this as a 'usable' contract (that should always be checked by a lawyer, but we all know that might not always happen) then it would be best to fix up the small mistakes.

Great article. Would you mind if I got in contact with you Julian? I've got some questions myself that you might be able to help me out with.

Thanks!

I cannot emphasie enough the need for this contract - i have practised criminal and civil law for nearly 20 years and a contract saved my skin once...Here is the story

Client responds to advert and comissions me to develop a site for 10k. The client was very difficult to control in terms of changes (Calls up to midnight were not unusual!). After almost 3 months of development and hinderance by the client he and the company decide to bin me - I believe this was due to my refusal to join the company as a director - They tried to sue me for 120K for loss of business, loss of profit and so the list goes on...

I had a clause in my contract that talked about mediation like this contract does and they refused point blankly...they also provided me with material that was not theirs and this was discovered subsequently

They lost! and withdrew their action before it went to court. My contract was there to protect both parties and on this ocassion it protected me...Also accurate records of conversations, emails and any communication were made by me. Material provided was confirmed by signature as their property and did not infringe on any copyright or intellectual property rights - so they were on a loser

Be warned people this is serious business - Just because they have some money to throw around does not make them honest and ethical - This was a new company that had big ideas - Cover yourself from day one!

Regards

Mark

P.S Make sure any contract that you use complies with the law for your country or state
